aka <Mona Liza svetskog šaha>

„Frauen leiden mehr und länger an Niederlagen als Männer." Während diese sich ihren Verlust-Frust mit blöden Ausreden schnell von der Seele redeten, seien Frauen oft tagelang deprimiert. Deshalb hätten Frauen sogenannte Verlustserien weit häufiger als Männer, die in der Evolution früher gezwungen gewesen seien, Niederlagen schnell zu überwinden. Die jugoslawische Großmeisterin Milunka Lazarevic kommentiert derlei Beobachtungen: „Wir müssen einen Jahrhundert-Vorsprung aufholen."

Dec-01-08  brankat: A very sketchy games' record of M.Lazarevic in CG database.

During the 1960s, and up to about the mid 1970s Milunka Lazarevic was among the leading 5-6 women chessplayers in the world.

Happy Birthday Milunka!

Dec-01-08  refutor: <brankat> please submit some games! the chessgames database is very thin in the 1960s and 1970s outside of the best of the best...
Dec-02-08  brankat: <refutor> I'd love to be of help, but, frankly, the only database I use and rely on, is the one :-)

  Dionysius1: I smiled at <Yugoslav Women's Championship 11 times and all under her maiden name>.

Is that to further the cause of women unburdened/unsupported by marriage (a new field of endeavour for minority specialists?) or a hint that we'll find all her games under Lazarevic and don't need to search under a married name?
